Lowering the bar for the mediocrity in society doesn’t serve society…at all.
The first Somalian Muslim Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor, who “shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk Damond after she approached his squad car, was sentenced to more than twelve years in prison.”
Robert Spencer weighed in about the dire impact of identity politics at play in Noor’s hiring…
This proves the truth of what I have said all along about this case: Mohamed Noor was not competent to be a police officer. If he had not been a Somali and a Muslim, he never would have been on the force at all. Identity politics kills. If there is any lesson to be drawn from the killing of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, that is it. The city of Minneapolis was so eager to have a Somali Muslim police officer on the force that it hired a man who had been found incompetent to hold the job. Even worse, Minneapolis officials did not fire him even when he proved that he was indeed unfit to be a cop.
Fox News has reported that “the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond once put a gun to a driver’s head during a traffic stop and sometimes ignored calls, according to court filings indicating that psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about his fitness for duty.”
